See both sides of the Continental Divide with a visit to Rocky Mountain National Park, a vast, 415-square-mile high-altitude preserve that’s home to elk, moose, and black bear, plus some of the tallest peaks in North America. This park in north central Colorado can be experienced in many ways by visitors, from relaxing walks on paved paths and a scenic drive to backcountry hiking, camping, rock climbing, and mountaineering in the 95 percent of the park designated as wilderness areas. The beauty of Bear Lake, the headwaters of the Colorado River, the historic Holzwarth homestead, and more than 350 miles of hiking trails await visitors to one of the most loved (and most visited) national parks in the U.S.
